#6929, "My try Minicraft Titanic" Sun Jan-19-14 12:09 PMby VonHoldinghausen
Well I guess it is time I post some of what I do with my minicraft. Only a cellphone camera this far, but I think the images are ok anyway.
My interest for Titanic and ships has been present all my life. I really do not know why. Could be from when my parents took me to see the Wasa (Google her;) when I was about 5 years old. When we got home my father and mother (!) built me a Wasa-kit from Airfix. I really treasured it :) From that time on I loved everything regarding ships and the seas. Hearing of the Titanic and even Andrea Doria made me so so sad :( Those ships were living beings to me.
I have done some modelling about 30 years ago. PE, CA and Evergreens stuff for example didnt even exist back then :)
I started my build about two moths ago. Im really pleased with the colors of the hull. Sadly they were hard to catch with my "camera". They are all Humbrols. The hull is the first thing ever I paint using an airbrush :) It turned out ok I think. I guess the rest of my build will be done using both brushes and airbrush. I have tried some scratchbuilding and it has turned out not perfect but ok I think. My breakwaters are too high for example, but I think they look nice even so :)
